Location: West of Jakarta, in LIppo Karawaci, Post Date: November 16, 2017
Karawaci Presbyterian Church is an international, English-language church in the satellite city of Lippo Karawaci, Indonesia (25km west of center city Jakarta). We are a global congregation representing multiple countries and continents, and including ex-pats living in Indonesia for mission or work purposes, re-pats who have returned home to Indonesia from overseas studies or work assignments, students from across Indonesia and SE Asia, and local Indonesians who want to attend an English-language fellowship.
Our congregation is also diverse in age and stage of life, including senior citizens, families with children, singles, young adults, and university students. The Lippo Karawaci community is somewhat transient, as mission and work assignments change; but we have experienced healthy continuity in our first few years as a church which began in the late fall of 2014. Faithful biblical exposition and a joyful community draw many to join us for as long as God calls them to this area.
Each Sunday morning, we oversee two university student chapel worship services attended by over 4,000 students; and we are blessed with the privilege of worshiping with them through music and the preaching of God's Word. In our later morning KPC service, which is more oriented to community people, our attendance has grown to over 250. in addition some of our KPC community attend the early services, so that our combined KPC attendance from the community is over 300. We have over 75 actual members of the church in 2017 and will hold officer elections early in 2018.
On Sundays, we utilize facilities on the university campus for worship services and Bible classes. We also offer Bible classes and small groups during the week for fellowship, discipleship, and prayer.
